Picasso Magical Paintings, the exhibition at the Picasso Museum in Paris

The Picasso exhibition, magical paintings: paintings rarely brought together

    • Between the summer of 1926 and the spring of 1930, Pablo Picasso produced a vast group of paintings that the art critic Christian Zervos would call "magic paintings" in 1938.
    • These are paintings with strange figures, in which Picasso experiments with different plastic forms.
    • This is a new chapter in its creation, where the power of "Guernica" is already being announced.
    • The exhibition Picasso, Magic Paintings brings together a large part of these unique works, now scattered all over the world.
    • We realize how much Picasso was inspired by the context of surrealism and the psychoanalytical currents of the early 20th century.
    • A very beautiful exhibition that presents paintings from a period that we rarely get to see together.
